Hobo Radio 416 – Do you really want to know?

After months of fan speculation, The Walking Dead finally revealed which cast member(s) met a grizzly end. Without spoiling the episode (that neither of them watched), Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle talk about the distinction between showrunners misdirecting fans and openly lying to them at panels.

They also talk about a new kiosk that allows you to scan your face and make your own personalized Star Wars and Marvel action figures and they pay tribute to Michael Crichton, the man who created Jurassic Park and Westworld.

Is it ever okay to lie to your fans? Would you spend $60 to put your face on an Iron Man action figure? How many stories about theme parks going haywire is too many? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “El Fuego” by Polyrhythmics

Hobo Radio 373 – Everything is terrible, the world sucks, but we’re going to talk about pop culture

As a brief tribute to Paris, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle talk briefly about all the French have given us.

They also try to figure out why it’s so tough for Hollywood to release movies at seasonally-appropriate times (the latest examples being Victor Frankenstein and The Night Before), discuss the cancellation of Kurt Sutter’s Bastard Executioner and look at the recent string of dead-but-presumed-still-alive TV show protagonists.

Are dramas like The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and The Leftovers in danger of making death meaningless on their shows? Was Kurt Sutter really the one who pulled the plug on his own show? Why is Lars no longer wearing deodorant? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Into the Ether” by Psychadelik Pedestrian
